our new family member

if you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen that we adopted a new puppy this month, baxter. this and a few other things could help to explain the silence here on the blog in may and june. baxter is a four month old lab hound mix with a sweet temperament who stole our hearts. sampson, our other baby, is still warming up to him, as he has been an only child for four years, but i think in time they will be best friends. aren’t his little spots the cutest? we are so happy to have him as part of our family now! do you have any tips for handling and introducing two dogs? it has been a really difficult two weeks with getting some bad news, but puppy cuddles are helping me get through.

  1. Baxter is adorable! I love puppies (who doesn’t?!). I also read the Book Thief for my book club…I thought it was good although I thought the beginning was a bit rough and took several chapters before I was into it.

  2. Baxter is way to cute!!! I have a four year old dog and have recently toying with the idea of getting a puppy. Your calligraphy is amazing – what a cool class to take! Look like you have been having a great time!
